Area Calculation MCQ 5: A rectangular park measures 8cm on length and it’s diagonals measures 10cm what is the perimeter of the rectangular?

A. 36cm          b) 38cm              c) 28cm            d) 18cm

Solution:

Here we will use Pythagoras theorem for solving this problem.

We have been given following data;

AB= 8 cm

and AC= 10 cm

Using Pythagoras theorem for right angled triangle ABC;

$(AC)^2= (AB)^2 + (BC)^2$

$(10)^2= (8)^2 + (BC)^2$

$100=64+BC^2$

$BC^2=36$

$BC=6 cm$

Now since opposite sides are equal in a rectangle, so;

and AB=DC=8 cm

Perimeter is the length of boundary of the rectangle i-e

$Perimeter=AB+BC+DA+CD=AB+BC+AD+DC=8+6+8+6=28 cm$

So the perimeter of the rectangle is 28 cm
